I've been Confirmed!

Yesterday was my Confirmation Seminar. Not the kooky Catholic thing where you eat Jesus and pledge your undying love to the pope. At JCU, post-grad students aren't considered 'candidates' until they go through the confirmation process. It involves a 2000 word proposal, a "substantive piece of scholarly writing", and a 30 minute presentation.

Needless to say, I was calm, cool and collected about the whole thing. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration. I was so nervous, and I mostly vented my tension by yelling at Andy all morning before my seminar! Sorry 'bout that, Andy.

Nerves or no nerves, I got through the presentation with no major mishaps, answered a few questions, and that was that. They decided I'm good enough, and I am officially a PhD candidate. Woo hoo!
